Last night we went to the Buffalo High School Art Show. I was blown away by the talent. The students explored all kinds of media including pencil sketching, painting, linoleum block cutting and pottery. The older students had a project of making a clay piece that started out as the same round size and progressed from there. The pieces were sold in a silent auction and we won 2 of them...the sundae and the hockey stick. Here are a few for you to see!

My cousin David is getting married and I have been helping my Aunt Barb with the rehearsal dinner. As you can tell, it is a western theme...Here are some of the things we've come up with! They will be used to turn a typical midwestern diner into an old western bar and grille! Very cute!
My darling boys made me breakfast in bed with a beautiful fruit and yogurt and home made muffins and GOOD coffee! It is a tradition. I have to say that the choice of food is getting better as they get older! I stayed in my pajamas until 3:00 in the afternoon and then we took a walk down to the lake and watched the boys paddle around in the canoe. It was a perfect day! Thanks guys! XOXO
Oh my, Spring was so delayed, but now we are bursting at the seams with flowers and green grass, green leaves and green buds. Amazing! The best part is that I didn't have to plant any of this, it just came up! Good job to the previous owners of the house! Lucky me!

Richard and I took a little drive down to Aunt Helen and Uncle Walter's in New Prague. The visit brought back so many fond memories of the weeks I'd spend with them in the summer. Most vivid of memories is going out to the garden and picking the fresh peas off the vines, shelling them and eating the green little morsels right then and there. I've always loved peas! I also remember going in to the chicken coop to get some fresh eggs... This is the place that my grandmother Marie grew up...so much history here. The grape vine is thought to be about 100 years old! The place is looking a little sad these days. Uncle Walter has been gone for years and Aunt Helen is now 93. I hope to get down there more often to help spiff the place up!
